Why they worked with Pattern: Brand’s Tmall storefront was facing closure,
Needed a benchmarking standard
This leading outdoor brand in Australia & New Zealand was invited by Tmall Global to open a store in late 2017. By Sept. 2018, the Tmall store faced closure due to its low sales and Tmall seller score. It was hard for the brand’s internal team to benchmark how its local Chinese trade partner was performing against expectations.
What we accomplished together:
The brand asked Pattern to audit its Tmall operation and Chinese marketplace trading partner to provide advice on best practices. To do this, Pattern developed a 3 part strategy:
- Auditing the existing operation
- Recommending quick wins to drive operational efficiency and performance
- Carrying out the operational turnaround plan
3 strategic pillars that helped them grow
1. Auditing the existing operation
To create an initial benchmark for brands that are struggling to know how to compare themselves to their competition on marketplaces, Pattern put together a marketplace scorecard. In this case, Pattern examined the outdoor brand and compared it to Patten’s Tmall scorecard so that the brand could have an idea of where they were lacking compared to other brands selling on Tmall.
2. Recommending quick wins to drive operational efficiency and performance
After performing an audit on the outdoor brand, Pattern quickly found ways that the brand could optimize its performance. Pattern first laid out problems that could be fixed quickly regarding operational efficiency and performance, so that the brand would avoid being shut down on Tmall.
3. Carrying out the operational turnaround plan
After offering these suggestions to the brand, the brand engaged Pattern as its new Tmall trading partner, including carrying out the operational turnaround plan and managing its Tmall search and display marketing.
After developing a strategy centered around these 3 pillars: auditing the existing operation, recommending quick wins to drive operational efficiency and performance, and carrying out the operational turnaround plan, Pattern helped the outdoor brand increase sales by 250%.
Working together in an aligned fashion with the outdoor brands’ team helped us achieve these results together. Partner obsession is in our DNA—we win when our partners win.
